ADA and CFS (article link)

"It is not a question of whether or not you can do the job, but whether or not the job is accessible to you and your co-workers receptive to you."

Read the article here

"People with CFS face a tremendous economic challenge. Some persons with CFS are forced into the nightmare of red tape seeking financial assistance from the federal government. Others are trying to remain economically independent by seeking new employment, remaining in present positions or attempting to return to work. These persons with CFS may benefit from some accommodation from their employers. But, CFS may be an invisible disability. There may be no readily apparent need for accommodation. This may cause a misunderstanding in the work place. A person with CFS may be perceived as being: lazy, unmotivated or antisocial. This may create a stressful work environment and lower the person's "with CFS" chances for success."
